Having a look at the Dewar’s 18 year old. There is not much they tell us at the website but they tell us this, that does not tell us much again…
We only use Scotland’s finest 18-year old malt and grain whiskies to create this full, smooth and creamy blend. We then return the blend to oak casks and age it to perfection. The result, a richer whisky with a long, lingering finish.
Nosing this I find some soft spices, bread dough, green apples, grassy, and hay at first. After a bit it becomes more honey sweet with thick vanilla pudding. Fruit notes come forward after a while in the glass. Sweet rich notes of red berries, raspberries, strawberries, red apple, warm banana, raisin, dash of cumin and soft creamy milk chocolate (just a hint in the back)
The palate is much like the nose and very sweet. Some dry baking spices, dried fruits and some tangerines I can also find in it. Medium length finish, sweet and hint of cumin again and some dry cocoa powder. Scoring this one an 6,5 out of 10. It is a nice dram but for a whisky of this price I find it a bit lacking depth?
